Super cute for a kid's room, but also super cute for that nerdy guy who likes fun stuff. A sweet, geeky wall clock will let him know when it's time to suit up and be super. $44 at My Sweet Muffin.
I like simple solutions and I think this pretty much qualifies. I have noticed that guests staying in my house have to unplug things in order to charge their electronical stuff. I need to just go ahead and put a power strip in the guest room for the, but I think these bed risers could come in handy as well, especially since people often use their phones for alarm clocks. It will also give me a little extra bit of storage space...clever, that. $24.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Ok, this Thor's Hammer (you might know it by it's proper name...Mjölnir...) Nightlight is on backorder, so get on the waiting list because this is a pretty awesome way to light your night. $29.99 at Target.
Stuffed animals are tricky things. They are cuddly and they keep secrets, even the secret that you are an adult and you still like to cuddle with a stuffed animal once in a while. Or, you will, if this rhino friend is around. Super cute, plush and made with extra long arms for hugging, he could be a new best friend for you or someone younger...but probably you. $45 at Finkelsteins.
Susan Nichole is a handbag company that specializes in vegan purses. I have one and it's lovely. Now they have introduced some wallets aimed at men, or you know, anyone who likes the bi-fold style of wallet. It's handsome and handy and vegan, so it pleases on several levels. $48 at Susan Nichole.
This is the sort of geekery that satisfies on more than one level. Yes, it is true, I am a fan of Doctor Who. I am also a a fan of comic books and although I don't keep up with Spider-Man anymore, I am certainly familiar with a certain famous cover. Are you? $25.56 at Redbubble.
While I confess that I am a champion of House Baratheon (Mark Addy and Steven Dillane are two of my favorite actors, what did you expect?), this sporty House Star tie clip is a subtle nod to your geekery while in the office. There are also tie clips for almost every other geeky subject you may enjoy. $23 at The Little Saint.
Aside from all the other “things” that I have a “thing” for (i.e. Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, kitties, vegans, Sherlock Holmes). I also have a “thing” for stegosauruses...stegosauri? Whatever. They are my favorite dinosaur. So here is a belt buckle with a stego on it. It's cool and I like it. So there. $40 at Rhythmic Metal.
Ok all my sci fi geek friends out there, listen up. If you're getting married and you just cannot find that perfect ring, why not get yourself your very own geeky Wedding Band like this Stargate one at Wedding Bands Design for $2144. Or how about an R2D2 wedding band set from Paul Michael designs pictured below for anywhere from $1500 to $3700. Nobody said love was cheap, even Geek Love!
I give a lot of love to the Batman here, but I have to acknowledge my fondness for his grown-up ward as well, one Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing. He's pretty awesome too and you can show your love with this excellent bleach dyed shirt. $9 at Neolita.
I post this as a "cool guy gift" but only in the sense that you'd be a really cool guy if you gave this to me. Ok, fine, it would be a cool gift for anyone. Anyone who loves Scotch and chocolate. Like me. So...you know...I'm here if you feel like gifting me. $20 gets you small box of Scotch filled chocolates (but you can always get me the bigger box, if you see fit) and a lovely stainless steel flask at Sugarfina.
Key Lime is my husbands favorite flavor of pie. But I don't really like pie or making pie, so he has to make due with getting some when we go out. Perhaps this cutie would make the wait a little more bearable? $32 at House of Darkly.
Here's a simple and classic skull ring that's a little more for the weekend punk than the hardcore biker dude. Let's face it, sometimes we have jobs that don't allow us to rock out quite as much as we'd like to and budgets dictate that we cannot have that awesome, heavy and expensive skull ring, no matter how much we bang our heads. But don't worry. This is a totally affordable and stylish alternative. It's even adjustable, so you can share it with your favorite punk partner. $20 at Color Treasures.
Aw, there's something about the expression on the face of this “mini-guy” that totally charms me. A poseable, maple figure that really does look like he wants to SMASH with his tiny fists. He's adorable. $14.95 at Jim Penner Wood Toys.
There is very little information on the Mike's Hot Honey website, and yet, I am terribly intrigued. Honey...that's hot? That sounds like it would be excellent in so many dishes. In marinades, in dressings, on toast...IN COCKTAILS!! I'm in. $10 for 12 oz at Mike's Hot Honey.
I was at Comic-Con last week and one of the best geek outs I heard was a girl getting giddy to her cartoonist father about seeing Neil deGrasse Tyson. He needed an explanation of this teen heartthrob and was a little surprised when he discovered he was the astrophysicist and not some pop star with a similar name. I think geeks everywhere will appreciate this prayer candle, made in his image. $15.97 at Twerkstore.
I think this is a little creepy and I guess it could be Silly Putty with AI. Check out this freaky Magnetic Smart Putty. You get a super strong ceramic magnet to use or you can turn the putty into a magnet as well. Mold yourself a little terminator and make it move. Magnetic putty comes in two colors and is $14.99 at Vat19.
You crazy kids and your music. That wacky Daft Punk is all the rage these days. If you want to celebrate them, even when you can't listen, how about this set of Daft Punk helmets? The inside is even hollow so you can terrorize really small animals or put them on top of your pencils or something. $29.99 at Solid Gold Obj.
Despite living with a frequently bearded man, I really know very little about beards....except that they tend to leave a mess in the sink and that they are often scratchy, as well as itchy. But I am guessing someone with a beard may have unique grooming needs. And that may include Beard Balm. Although I am not sure why they need to be waterproof...$20 at Buy Olympia.
As you read this, San Diego Comic Con is ending...*sniff*. But if you want to keep your geeky light burning, here's an item just for you. A nightlight made with comic book covers. This one happens to be two of my personal faves, Hulk and Wolverine, but there several available. You can even add your own image and display it until the next con rolls around. $24.95 at Allyboo's Creations.
When it comes to men's jewelry, simple is usually better. And this simple and clean bracelet is a good example of that philosphy. Just a leather band and one stainless steel link make for a handsome, masculine accessory. $12 at Dwight's Shop.
I have so many gadgets it's silly. I love my iPad, but since I don't listen to music on it and want to keep the space free for other things, I also have an iPod. This lovely wood dock might save me some space and time by charging them BOTH in one place. $130 at Vallis Wood.
If you are looking at that picture and wondering what the heck it is, you aren't alone, but once I found out I was all like...“I've been wondering how they do that!" Yeah, you're smarter than I am but it took me a while to figure out that they are the tools made to spiralize your hot dog. And spiralizing your hot dog makes for extra crispy bits and better condiment retention, so you know, it makes the world a better place. $11.99 at Quirky.
I am really digging this RibCage™ for the iPad. It's got that spooky, slightly creepy, yet terribly practical thing going for it. A reinforced protective shield for keeps it all safe, and the ribcage design adds structure and coolness. $34.99 at Switch Easy.
I'm not a huge fan of Martinis, but I might be if someone got me these glasses. I just think these Wooden Martini Glasses are cool and classy. It's also cool that they are handmade in the good old USA. $100 for the pair at Uncommon Goods.
THWIP! Here's a super sweet little sculpture for the nerdy types in your life. Extra bonus, it's based on a sculpture of a hand saying "I LOVE YOU" in sign language, so it's romantic too, if you want it to be. It could even be a great reminder that "with great power, comes great responsibility." So it's very versatile. $25 at Moonlight Aura. (p.s. THWIP is the sound of webs shooting from Spider-Man's wrist...just in case you forgot.)
Don't know what to drink tonight? Look to your favorite film and literary characters to help you out with this clever print. With forty-nine different beverages from Philip Marlowe's Gin Gimlet, to Rocky Balboa's raw eggs, you'll find something that you can choke down. $27 at Pop Chart Lab.
This is a really nice depiction of Capt. Quint from Jaws. It even has my favorite quote on there. But it appears that you can have any quote you want applied, or no quote at all. Something about the style reminds me of young adult books from the 50s and 60s. You know, those two color spot images? $35 at Castle McQuaid.
Oh, how we love our sci-fi around here. And it's not gonna stop any time soon because I just found these spiffy Star Trek prints and I am pretty sure you will get a kick out of them. There is a retro movie poster-style image for every episode of the original series, this one happen to be from set 6 and is truly a classic. Set 6 is $34.95 for four prints at Qmx online.
I can't even begin to imagine how this corn on the cob chocolate bar tastes...but I think I want to find out. Filled with organic corn, smoked sea salt, smoked paprika, smoked pepper, and homegrown sage, it's definitely a different take on chocolate. But I can see how it would work. $5 at Lagusta's Luscious.
This is not an inexpensive gift, but can you imagine the amount of work that went into this cool quilt that depicts the city of Los Angeles (New York is also available)? I think this is the kind of thing that becomes a family heirloom. Clever and attractive, and still useful? It might be worth the $450 (for those of us who can't quilt, at least). At aha Life.
A lot of people have a lot of opinions about the work of Charles Darwin. I happen to find him an interesting individual. I also happen to find the typography on this Darwin poster pretty special. And if Darwin is not your thing, there are other clever prints referencing clever people at Kapil Bhagat's Society6 page. Starting at $16.
If you love your movies and wish you could take a piece of it home with you then you're in luck. Face of the Earth makes handmade terrariums with hand carved and painted wax buildings/features (don't worry, they're sprayed with a fixative to last). I love this terrarium of Bag End from The Hobbit. It's the perfect replica of Bilbo's home but without the lasting commitment. So cute, this will be a conversation pierce in your home for sure. This one will run you $250. You can also choose from Beetlejuice's house and a delightful scene from Breaking Bad. Or, ask for a custom order.
Some may argue that not all of the characters named on this fab print are superheroes. Some may be wrong. That's for you to decide. But if you'd like to see your name up amongst the big ones...here's your chance. $30 at Soak Studio.
I have featured many different sets of cufflinks here. And I always kind of complain about it because who needs that many pairs of cufflinks? Who wears french cuffs that often? But if you do, this might be the one pair you really do need. Sweet fox tails are subtle, simple, and surprisingly historical. $215 at Monsieur Fox.
I still don't remember that mnemonic that is supposed to remind you of the fate of Henry VIII's wives. All I know is that it's interesting, if tragic, history. Oh, and that Henry smelled bad due to a festering wound in his leg. What a catch! But these stacking dolls are a great catch for any history buff. And they're cute, too! $60 at The Foldger Shop.
I am of two minds about guys in bowties. On the one hand, Doctor Who rocks one, so why can't any nerd? On the other hand...c'mon, don't you kind of want to punch a guy in a bowtie? No? Maybe that's just me. Either way, I think this tie offers a little more style than the average neckwear. And it's called "salted caramel" and I may be shallow, but with a name like that...well...yeah. $17.50 at Maple Street Market.
I had a cat. Then, rather suddenly, I had two cats. And while many think of me as a crazy cat lady because, well...I may talk about them a lot and have pictures of them on my phone, it's my husband who is responsible for the additions to the family and he's ready to take in a few more. I'm thinking that this shirt will be his next gift. $14 at The Bold Banana.
When I got married we had Dia De los Muertos figurines on our cake. That was, apparently, a little too edgy for some of our guests. I can only imagine how they would react to this amazing Cakezilla cake topper. It's so brilliant, that I almost want to get married all over again just so I can have this on top of my cake...almost. Customizable and made to order for $399. It's a little pricey, but oh the memories you will have! At Republic of Cute.
It may not be cool to wear Crocs but they sure do make super cute pet beds! Comes in a variety of colors, and best of all, easy to clean. $99.95 at Sasquatch Pet Beds
I love how this suitcase chair looks - too cool! If I could afford it, this would totally go in my home. $1,294 at Shop Beyond This
Father's Day is next Sunday. I know for my house, that means Daddy will be drinking beer and eating brats on the back deck. He's been getting into all the different beers and developing a "beer palate". If you have a Dad who's really into his beer, you might want to get him one or four of these Dual Beer Glasses. One beer to each side of the glass for mixing. Try going to a local micro brew beer shop and get some recommendations as to what beers would do well for this. One glass is $35 and a four glass set is $125 at Pretentious Beer Glass.
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, then I probably don't need to tell you who the Kingslayer is when he's at home (that would be Jamie Lannister, if you aren't a fan). And without giving anything away, let's just say, we all change over time. But you can still be totally metal in this rockin' shirt, paying homage to that bad boy of the Kingsguard. $20 at Busted Tees.
This tee made me ell oh ell, people. My husband and I have an ongoing battle to claim ALL the love of our two kitties. Naturally, it's all in good fun, as long as they love me best. $16 at Silver Sprocket.
There was a time when most of my guy friends would not be caught dead in an apron. These days, most dudes cook, and their apron is a badge of honor. And geek dudes? Well, how about this for your geeky, comic-loving kitchen dweller? Inspired by one of the all time great comic villains, it's fun and silly but still managed to cover pretty much everything that could get splattered while whipping up those cupcakes...or whatever. $85 at HauteMessThreads.
The time has come to declare yourself. Say it loud and say it proud, or just wear it on your hoodie. Are you a nerd? Yes...yes, you are. Tell the world with your hoodie. $38 at Nerd Machine.
I was looking at some “fashion” neckties the other day and marveling at the prices. Now, I know a good tie is a mark of distinction and all that, but woo boy, they can be pricey. And yet, this spiffy little number is totally affordable, customizable and above all, cool as heck. Just 428 at RokGear.
Pillows can make a boring room fun and comfortable. Nerdy pillows can make a boring room fun, comfortable and...well...nerdy. And we're not going to discuss dirty pillows at all. But for the Supernatural fan, there are these Dean Winchester pillow covers, advertising the best pies and burgers in town. Sam and Castiel pillow covers are also available if you are into a whole theme on your couch. $28 for the cover (pillow forms are not included) at Unicorn Empire Prints.
